As a student, I have pretty good memories of that great marketing event... Happening religiously on the third Thursday of November; it's almost winter, it's always cold, rainy, and celebrating wine sounds like a cool idea.
I wonder if that Beaujolais nouveau is even known abroad or not.
Then you're in the mood to celebrate, it's quite cheap, so there you go... you forget you drink crap! lol
Well, I remember I have tried some not so bad in the past, but really... never heard anyone telling his favourite wine was Beaujolais nouveau and there is obviously a reason to that.
edit: I'll try it tonight, won't resist the fun of it (memo to self: one day gotta test my level of "resistance" when it comes to fun, I'll be seriously scared!!!).
This year they say it does not have a touch of banana but rather of wild strawberries! Yummmm? Yummm!
